. is that the case? karl rove, former senior advisor to president george w. bush and a fox news contributor and good morning to you, karl. i see you stayed far away from washington, d.c. today, back there in austin, texas. what do you think that number, 55%, reflects based on what we've watched over the past two months? >> well, it reflects people paying attention to what's been going on. the president has been far more confrontational after the election. in fact, excuse me, "new york times" article yesterday interviewing a bunch of his friends where one of the takeaways from his friends and aides, he would be quote, more bloody-minded about republicans. recent stories in both the post and "l.a. times" and "new york times" where his aids felt aides felt he was liberated in his section term. liberated from what? take on political opposition and focus on defeating the republicans in the fourth fourth election. most presidents say they're liberated. i'm never on the ballot again. i can work with people to bring together big purposes. the president has much smaller objective. let me beat use my power to

that history has not been kind to presidential incumbents. >> second terms have been tough. george w. bush left with the economy melting down and the lowest approval ratings practically in history for a president. bill clinton was impeached. richard nixon resigned his office. >> reporter: american university historian dr. allan lichtman says president obama must use the power of the people to sway congress and it appears that will be part of the inaugural address. >> he's going to talk about our political system doesn't require to us resolve all our disputes or political difference, but it does require us to seek chop ground when it can and should exist. -- common ground when it can and should exist. he's going to make that point very strongly. >> reporter: a new public opinion group will be made for public action. >> we want to make that there is people out there pushing for action. >> reporter: tax reform, entitlement, jobs and spending among the top issues for americans. gun control, climate change and international affairs are also on the agenda. you really don't have four years now. it
a relief it is! >>> welcome back. josh trevino former speechwriter in the george w. bush administration and now at the texas public policy foundation and ambassador swanee hunt who served as u.s. ambassador to austria, now a lecturer at harvard's kennedy school of government. we have just been talking as you saw in a very heated fashion about the situation in north africa and i think that's one core part of the legacy of the first administration's foreign policy and hillary clinton's tenure at state and i think the defining external event to the administration of foreign policy has been the arab spring, obviously, and all that uncorked and how to manage that. but before we get to that, we still have robin on satellite. i want to talk about the relationship between the president and hillary clinton and the degree to which the legacy of foreign policy in the first term has been hillary clinton's legacy and the degree to which it really has been -- the shots have been called from the white house because a lot of reporting on this has been very interesting. tonight there's going to be an in
about george w. bush's second inaugural address when he said i want to liberate all people all over the world, and even conservatives thought are you nuts, are you crazy? you can't do that. yesterday obama talked about really liberties at home, both in terms of gay rights and in terms of health care and in terms of the power to do good, the power to make good, the power to be something. that was a much more narrow vision, and one he said we won't get done all in one fail swoop. to me this was the obama we really hadn't seen, and i think a good indication of where he is heading. >> it was a domestic address. we did talk about -- he did talk about ending wars, but really the focus was on domestic rights, domestic advancement. >> the one thing he didn't talk about, which, of course, the campaign was based on, was the economy and jobs. right? this was an address that really was very aspirational in many moments, and especially talking about equal rights, and at the same time i think there are a lot of americans out there saying right, but what i'm really concerned about right now is whe
like, you know, going into now five years post-george w. bush, this is an important front. >> i think they are also recognizing we are dealing with a very different national security defense. you heard leon panetta talking about the light footprint, having a smaller footprint, like in columbia, we're there for a long period of time, but there's a complement between resources, troops, embassies, the different kinds of people we need to help and the endeavors and the republicans haven't quite figured out how to talk about that. gone are the days we're going to have these, you know, big signing ceremonies on a ship in the middle of the ocean when our opponent surrenders. that's not what war is anywhere. >> that's what the hagel hearing is. >> before we go, in terms of what this has done is brought to the fore the importance of our diplomatic core overseas. at the same time, there's questions about funding, keeping them behind barracks or having them out in the world and the risks entailed there. i wonder how much you think this sort of changes the dynamic in terms of, you know, who we ha
former presidents bushes, are not obviously -- obviously george h.w. bush has been quite ill for a while. we understand the president has arrived at the capitol building and is having some coffee right now with some of the congressional leaders. he made his traditional visit to st. john's church. they also made a trip to another church yesterday. and among those people to see that up close is bay area visitor alan antonio. >> they were actually attending services this morning. as we waited, they got in and there's nice video of mrs. obama waving with the motor came. >> reporter: they are here with their 9-year-old son who ashed a spot with the people to people -- earned a spot with the people to people leadership to be able to attend and witness the inall -- inauguration. this is their first trip to d.c. they are especially excited, since this is also martin luther king day. i feel so honored to be part of this moment in history. and just -- it represents everything that dr. king fought for. as an african-american woman, i've been teary-eyed since i got off the plane. i've been teary-eye

is effectively following the policy that george w. bush did beforeha beforehand. going forward, i think israelis -- on the he them will say can they do this? i tend to subscribe to the view that a healthy relationship between them and the u.s. is going to have to be fungal. but i also agree with the view that obama is unlikely to take that action in the near term 37. >> david, last question. speaking of north africa, while we've got you, the latest on the algerian situation seems -- the information still is becoming to us not this any real sort of clarified way. what happens now? do you think president obama will have to address a new approach to africa? >> the u.s. has been building in north africa for at least a decade, in toerchls trying to build up the ministry of mali, particularly the algerian army doesn't heed to a -- yeah, that's for sure. it could be weeks, months, years. thank you so much both for your time. stay with us. straight ahead, we'll have a look at travel casts across the continent. we'll be right back. ♪ [ male announcer ] how do you turn an entrepreneur's dream... ♪ int

is more self-aware than i perhaps thought he was on this. he's been looking at george w. bush's early part of the second term. but the question is what are they going to do about this? they do have a lot of things on their plate with gun control. how much are they going to push this? senate democrats, as you've been saying all morning, are their biggest problem here. >> can you talk about that? because i heard john barrasso, a republican leader in the senate, talk about, gosh, a large number of senate democrats that are running in states where barack obama got below 45%. >> it's tough for them. >> democrats are running in republican territory two years from now in a lot of these senate races, right? >> no question. and a lot of these issues, obviously like on gun control and things are things that these senate democrats don't want to talk about at all. the re-election prospects -- i mean, it's too early to say who's going to be controlling the senate after 2014, but democrats will have an uphill climb. you look at senator kay hagen from north carolina. she has a tough re-election fight on

of the electorate. obviously john mccain has talked about this since seven. george w. bush was very involved in this. jeb bush is speaking very strongly in favor of this type of citizenship. the trouble they are likely to run into is in the house of representatives, right. >> reporter: one would think so. the problem with this bill for the critics in the house is that it is, call it what you will, whatever name you use it's an amnesty bill in the sense that people who came here illegally and who are here now will be able to attain a provisional legal status. that won't make them citizens, that will be a much more come ph*ebg complex, they get to come out of the shadows and be here legally and work here legal leave. a lot of people will say that is amnesty. amnesty is a word that fires up people who were really reoccupied and concerned about this issue. this is one of these issues where intensity matters. you look at that big number, 66% in favor of a path for citizenship for these people. how many people are really passionate about it? it's hard to know. a great many of those who will oppose it are
of staff for president george w. bush and the 41st president of the united states, texas a & m university, mr. andy card joins us. as chief of staff, you have to set an agenda for the president. what is the challenge with the second term as opposed to the first? >> first of all, today is a day of celebration. yesterday was as well. but today will be the real public day of celebration and i'll be celebrating it, too. president obama is my president, too. i look forward to him taking the oath of office. i want to hear that inaugural speech. but i can tell you, there is going to be a lot of heavy lifting that has to take place in order for the president to be success envelope a second term. that's when the blues start to set in, when you realize how tough the job is and it's not just about the issues that you can anticipate meeting. it's the ones that you don't anticipate that you have to meet. and so i hope he moves from being an i president. he was very much an i president during his first term. i, i, i, i, i. the second term had better be a we. i'm not talking about a campaign slogan. yes
publication. john dickerson was credited with being the guy who knocked george w. bush off his heels the most times during his presidency. it's not surprising to me, though, that there is a conflict of interest here. do we remember during the election when there were reporters caught off mic before mitt romney made his statement? cbs news reporter, jan crawford, was one of those reporters. so clearly there is a problem at cbs of there being biased in their reporting. but as we've seen throughout the years, it's not surprising. >> steve: so this is clearly, in your estimation, an example, glaring example of liberal media bias? >> i think it is. and at least with mr. dickerson, he is honest about, in his biothat he's work for slate and the cbs political director. but -- >> steve: how do you do both? >> that's the question. i mean, if cbs is going to portray themselves as a middle of the road, unbiased news source, then it seems a little strange that you would have someone who is writing regularly for a far left publication, as the political director. i think that we saw that with the election r
over how to deal with the george w. bush tax cuts. the house wanted them all extended for everybody. democrats are never on board. president obama was never going to be on board with the idea. so john boehner struggled in that situation, even coming up with an alternative plan for extending tax breaks for anyone making less than $1 million a year. he had to pull from the courthouse. so that was. a was. the next day, he also -- not the next day. excuse me, on january 1, they came back and finally agreed to raise tax rates for those incomes of people making $400,000 a year. that was a tough bill and proposal for him to put forward to, just because taxes went up at the end of the day. the next day he came back and decided to not have a vote on the sandy relief package. that made house lawmakers angry in the northeast. governor chris christie of new jersey also had some tough words for him. he pulled the proposal because conservative republicans said the bill was loaded with pork with projects not related to the storm and they should've gone through the normal appropriations process. a
to raise the debt limit under george w. bush who was president then, barak obama said can't do it. sorry. it would be unpatriotic. >> he said america has a debt problem. i intend to -- >> steve: here we are on the precipice of his second term. do we imagine that anything is going to be different than the first term where he ran up the tab? >> no. i think that's pretty clear and if you look at the national debt from president to president, bush was a big spender. got it up to 7 trillion. but obama at 16.4 trillion and at this inauguration people are saying, no, he's not a spender. it's all bush. >> steve: of course. >> this is unsustainable. this is the big crisis of our time. >> steve: what's the statute of limitations on blaming bush run? >> never. there is no statute of limitations on murder or blaming bush. >> steve: all right. john stossel. check him out tonight on the fox business channel at 9:00 p.m. eastern time. thank you very much. all right. straight ahead, michelle malkin is coming up and says our kids are getting dumber and the president is to blame for lowering our standards
